    A nice post by Mamta and an equally good supplementary cum complementary response post by Pawan Singh Mahar. Both of you possess potential subject for writing separatel article on the subject.

    I was quite enchanted by the Dev Bhoomi on my short visit to the state.
    Standing on the banks of Holy Ganga and with a mesmerising view of the mountains, on a pleasantly chilly early morning, I lost myself to the heavenly sensation and felt that yes, this is Dev Bhoomi.

    I am yearning for a more comprehensive and extensive visit to the state. Hope the gods will shower that blessing on me.
